The island of Elba is a green oasis within the Tuscan archipelago and in its midst you will find Casa Giani, a luxury hilltop villa which offers space, sunshine and views of the Mediterranean from almost every window.
The villa is divided into two independent apartments which comfortably host two families or groups who want to holiday together while also retaining some privacy. Each apartment is well equipped, the views over the bay of Seccheto are spectacular and the island is a haven of golden beaches, crystal clear water, granite cliffs, hillside villages, hardworking people and mouth-watering local flavours.
Casa Giani is located in a quiet area and yet it is close to the village of Seccheto where you will find various amenities as well as a bar and two restaurants. From the village you can follow hiking paths and mountain bike trails towards archaeological sites and magnificent views over the Med and the islands of Pianosa, Montecristo and Corsica. Just 300 metres from the villa you will find a small gulf full of natural pools where you can swim and the beach in Seccheto has a charming little bar. Or 2km away is the large beach of Cavoli where you can rent pedalos and canoes and go exploring. The picturesque villages of San Pietro and San Ilario are well worth a visit, there are several excellent places to eat nearby, activities like diving, snorkeling, fishing, sailing, cycling, trekking and golf are all available and the spa at Terme di San Giovanni is a wonderful therapeutic experience for those who want to really relax.
Elba has its own airport so you can reach the Island from places like Berlin, Dusseldorf, Friedrichshafen, Hamburg, Munich, Vienna, Zurich, Bern, Milan and Pisa. By ferry you can come from Piombino to Portoferraio.
